Saturday & Sunday—On the Move!

96 dpi 4x6 2nd Annual East Mississippi Mission LectureshipSaturday, April 26, Bonnie and I arose at 5:45 a.m. to enable us to ready ourselves and depart for the Second Annual East Mississippi Missions Lectureship, hosted by the Union, MS Church of Christ. I made my PowerPoint presentation of our 2014 Guyana Mission Trip before those assembled. I spoke at 11:00 a.m., and we remained for the fellowship meal to follow. Everyone enjoyed a good selection of homemade soups and desserts.

Unfortunately, we and some other speakers had to leave so we could travel to other appointments. Bonnie and I pointed the trusty ole van toward Huntsville, AL for the second weekend in a row. One might observe that traveling from Winona, MS to Huntsville, AL by way of Union, MS is anything but direct. Nevertheless, we arrived in time for supper at the home of brother Mark and sister Paula South, and two of their adolescent children. They graciously lodged us with them Saturday night.

Sunday morning, I made my PowerPoint presentation again about our 2014 Mission Trip to Guyana, South America. During worship, I preached “Understanding How God Communicates with Mankind, Today.” Afterward, one of the elders treated Bonnie and me to lunch at a Chinese restaurant, and everything I sampled was very good. Then, we punched through storm clouds and rain to arrive finally back in Winona, MS.

We’ll enjoy our own bed for two nights before launching out for a week of the Annual Maywood Missionary Retreat hosted by the World Evangelism team. It takes place each year outside of Hamilton, AL. When it winds down, Bonnie and I will head for Collierville, TN, where we have a working supper with brethren soon to deploy on a mission trip to Guyana, South America. Sunday afternoon, I will make my PowerPoint presentation about our Guyana trip to the Collierville Church of Christ. Then, Sunday afternoon or Monday morning, we will return to Winona, MS—completing one, big circle a week in the making. Along the way, we must find time to complete layout of the next issue of The Voice of Truth International, prepare and publish the April issue of Gospel Gazette Online, and prepare for my next class where I am teaching the Book of Job. Maybe thereafter, we can find a little relief, slow down a bit and catch our breath!
